Yea, you got one 8th place vote.

A few days ago at Fan Graphs, I looked at which players recently had decent seasons (top 10 in WAR), but didn't get a single MVP vote. In the five previous years worth of MVP votes, only 12 of 100 players didn't get a single vote. These players generally hit good, not great, and got a decent percent of their value from their defense. Alex Gordon fits into this description. When the AL MVP vote come out tomorrow (Monday), he may be shut out. How do you think he will do in the voting?
